Whether Mitt Romney Used A Cheat Sheet Or Not, Big Bird's Still Pissed (VIDEO)

This Just In 20

Big Bird fires back at Mitt RomneySo there's all this hoo-hah going on around on the Internet questioning whether or not Mitt Romney used a cheat sheet at the debate on Wednesday night. The Republican nominee was filmed taking something out of his pocket and putting it onto the podium, which could be a pretty big deal because no notes were allowed. His camp is 100 percent denying the accusations, saying it was a handkerchief. This isn't high school math class, I believe Romney's smarter than that.

While Handkeegate is SO totally enthralling, I'm still caught up with the Big Bird shenanigans. Here at The Stir, we've thrown around a few ideas for other job possibilities for our feathered friend and adjusted Mitt Romney's campaign song accordingly.

Seems that Big Bird is still PRETTY heated about the whole ordeal, too. The yellow guy is fuming in a new Funny or Die clip. Trust me, it's something you've GOT to see.

WARNING: VERY NSFW. Unlike Sesame Street -- this is NOT to be watched around ANY children.

I don't know if I've ever seen so many expletives used at once. Big Bird's mad, rightfully so, and well -- I always had a feeling the big guy had a dark side. And is it just me, or does this guy not sound a little bit like Joe Pesci?

OK, but really though, everyone's had their fun. It's time to move on. Yes, the Big Bird thing was unexpected and made a splash on social networking sites like Twitter and Facebook. However, there are loads of other important things the candidates touched on in Wednesday night's debate that deserve the same type of national attention. Plus, I don't like seeing my childhood bud like this.

Do you agree we need to drop this Big Bird drama and move on? What do you think of Hankeegate?

Amen! Enough with big bird already.

I'm with HockeyMom. Aren't you tired of this yet? Doesn't it make you feel foolish that this is all you've got from the debate to use? Big Bird?? I'd be embarrassed and would probably write about the Kardashians.

Wow. Get over it. Your messiah suck ass at the debate, you saw the true man and you have to divert attention some place else. Big Bird made more money than Mitt Romney last year. He will be ok. If federal funds are so little, he will be fine. When was the last time you donated to PBS?

I don't care how anyone feels about this issue anymore.... This video was 100% completely inappropriate!!!! I think it's disgusting that CafeMom would allow this to be on here. Absolutely disgusting!

Damn bills,



Didnt take your happy pills this beautiful Saturday morning?



You are bitter to the very end:)



I'm pretty sure no one (how did you put it?)... "Sucked ass" at the debate. Because the biggest buzz the next day was all about big bird. In fact, here in Seattle, donations to our local PBS were up 30% the next day!! That's hilarious. Yes, Big Bird and Elmo will be fine... I'm more concerned about how much its effecting you:)

Where was the outrage in August when Romney first talked about this? Either folks aren't listening or it's being used as a distraction.



Where's the discussion about the jobs numbers? The government spending $156 million on a prison? The recession we're heading towards? Oh wait, let's keep talking about Big Bird and Romney wiping his face with a hankerchief.

ENOUGH ALREADY.  MR ROMNEY IS TOO SMART A BUSINESS MAN WITH CLASS TO TRY TO FAKE PUTTING NOTES ON THE PODIUM.  IT IS IN FACT A HANKERCHIEF.  I SAW HIM PICK IT UP SEVERAL TIME AND WIPE HIS UPPER LIP AND FORHEAD.  IT IS HOT UNDER THOSE LIGHTS.


ALSO, IF ANYONE WATCHED EVEN MORE CLOSELY, BO HAD NOTES ON HIS PODIUM AND WAS REFERRING TO THEM AND WRITING ON THEM.  SO WHAT WAS FARE.


FORGET ABOUT THE BIGBIRD COMMENT.  AT LEAST HE HAS A SENSE OF HUMOR.  BO TRIED TO PLAY ON THAT HUMOR WHEN HE CRASHED OUR UNIVERSITY CAMPUS THE NEXT DAY, CAUSING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF TAX DOLLARS AND TYING UP MAJOR THOROUGFARES AND THE AIRPORT FOR THREE HOURS FOR HIS 15 MINUTES OF THE SAME OLD BS. HE AND HIS WIFE HAVE BEEN HERE, AT 4 CAMPUSES IN TWO WEEKS, COSTING US TAXPAYERS HUNDRENDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS.  ALONG WITH THE $80,000 PER HOUR FLYING AROUND TO TWO AND THREE CITIES EVERY DAY. SO UNFORGIVABLE.

Plenty of people have been affected by the economy, why does Big Bird get so much support? We're in a recession, changes have to be made. I'm sure the celebrities that have been on Sesame Street can contribute enough to keep PBS going.
